Upon acceptance of the application, an MLRR volunteer will contact
you to arrange a home visit.
You will then be notified if you are approved for adoption.
If you are an approved adopter, you will be contacted when a potential
Labrador that is a "match" for you is available.
Puppies (9 months and younger) $300
Adult Labs (10 months to 5 years) $250
Senior Labs (6 years and up) $175
If the puppy or adult Lab is not spayed/neutered before adoption
there will also be a $50 deposit due at the time of adoption in addition to
the adoption fee. The $50 deposit will be returned to the adopter once MLRR
receives proof of neuter. The adoption fee helps offset the rescue expenses
incurred by MLRR. The average vetting cost is approximately $550 per Lab.
Spaying and Neutering
Rescued Labs from MLRR will be spayed or neutered. This not only
prevents more unwanted puppies, but also reduces the dog's risk of certain
health problems later in life, including some types of cancer.
